Efficient production of feed for farm animals

Cost pressure in the market for meat and dairy products is increasing. This also raises manufacturers’ interest in lowering energy consumption for the production of feed for cattle, pigs, and poultry. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Producing animal feed with less electricity and heat” (07/2014) presents the optimised production process for a compound feed plant. A computer-aided control program allows the energy-efficient processing of different batches of natural raw materials into a compound feed with a specified ratio of fats, proteins, and trace elements.  more...

Compact engine consumes less fuel

With lightweight construction and the common-rail fuel injection system, a Lower Bavarian engine manufacturer succeeded in reducing the fuel consumption of its industrial diesel engines. Combined with an exhaust gas recirculation system, the emission of nitrogen oxides is decreased significantly. The involved research activities are presented in the Bine-Projektinfo brochure “Durable diesel engine with electronic control” (06/2014).  more...

Purging the impurities from glass

The production of glass requires high temperatures and consumes a lot of energy. Thanks to a newly developed method, the energy demand can now be lowered by up to 40 % in a central part of special-purpose glass production — the refining process. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Energy-saving production of special-purpose glass” (05/2014) introduces the concept. The central component is a crucible made of the high-temperature resistant metal iridium, which can withstand high temperatures without cooling.

Laying pipelines in a more environmentally friendly manner

The near-surface installation of pipelines usually causes massive disturbance to the environment. It can create corridors up to 50 metres wide. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Swift construction of pipelines” (04/2014) presents a method that requires less than one fifth of the usual width. The steel or concrete pipes can be used for heating networks and can connect more distant customers faster and in a more environmentally friendly manner.  more...
